and a new documentary about the queen, the first in 20 years. giving viewers a look at her life like never before. we have highlights of that. we want to begin with the new winter storm moving across the country. dylan dryer is in for al. what have you got? >> we have two storms, and they both have a lot of snow with them. one is moving into the northeast and mid-atlantic region is already producing the alerts for the winter weather advisories, winter storm warnings, and it is mostly interior new england where we see the bulk of the heaviest snowfall. even in new york city, we are going to see some snow move in. you can see it is moving through the washington, d.c. area now, although it will eventually change over to rain and move into new jersey through philadelphia, into new york city as we continue through the day, and it extends back into chicago where we will see snow turn over to sleet and freezing rain. this area of low pressure back across indiana is going to move
7:01am
to the east, northeast through the morning, then we're going to see another storm system redevelop off the mid-atlantic coast. that's the one that brings heavier snow, across new england, and through the ski resorts. we see perhaps up to a foot of snow through parts of vermont into new hampshire and maine as well. it is not going to be a blockbuster storm, maybe an inch or so, you get to boston, we will see several inches of snow today and tonight as well. >> they've had some winter in boston so far. thanks very much. we are following breaking news in indiana where a private plane crashed into a neighborhood near south bend. nbc's kevin tibbles is at the scene. kevin, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. the private jet apparently experiencing technical problems slammed into this neighborhood not far from the south bend regional airport, hitting three homes and killing two on board. >> first i didn't believe i was seeing it. >> reporter: officials say it
7:02am
departed from tulsa, oklahoma, headed to south bend regional airport when the pilot radioed for help after experiencing equipment problems. >> i happened to see a shadow. i says oh, my god, i said i've never seen a plane this low. >> reporter: a landing attempt failed. >> in route, one of the engine companies witnessed the airplane go down in the neighborhood. >> heard some jet engines coming over, looked up, the plane was coming toward our house. i thought it was going to crash into our house. >> reporter: a twin jet like this one hit three homes before landing, nose first into one of the houses, killing two of the four people on board. >> i just hit the ground. i thought it was going to explode when it hit but it didn't. >> reporter: authorities say it injured two others aboard the plane and one person on the ground. all three were being treated at a local hospital. the crash comes just days after a twin engine plane went down late friday afternoon in a fort
7:03am
lauderdale parking lot killing all three people on board. >> popped and went down, massive explosion, billowing smoke. >> reporter: in south bend, the community is thankful more weren't hurt. >> today's incident is the kind you hope will never happen. >> reporter: this morning, the investigators continue to comb through the crash site over my shoulder here. ntsb says preliminary report on the cause of the crash could be out in seven to ten days. >> thank you. world leaders, include vice president joe biden are gathering in rome ahead of the installation of pope francis. let's get to keer simmons. >> reporter: good morning. even if it is raining like this tomorrow, this area will still be packed as you say. world leaders are flying in. the pope meeting with the argentina president.
7:04am
the pope's message, remember the poor, and his style is winning fans for people on the street. as pope francis prepares for the installation mass, vice president biden arrived in rome sunday. it is ordinary men and women that are connecting with the pope in an extraordinary way. francis walking over to a crowd of a few hundred people just to say hello, leaving his security scrambling. then sunday, he greeted tens of thousands in st. peter's square for his first angeles, even making the mass. in the crowd, we met philadelphia's cardinal. >> this is unique. this is a wonderful opportunity. i mean, it is the first time the new pope, pope francis appeared, first time he gives his blessing here. >> reporter: preparations in the same square are under way. we have the setup already, big screens here. you're expecting a lot of
7:05am
people? >> about a million people expected tuesday for the massive inauguration. >> he has taken all of us by surprise and storm. many of us up close to the situation find ourselves between two emotions of laughter and tears. >> reporter: and many believe his new style means a new direction for the church and the vatican leadership, the curia. >> i don't think we know all about what this pope is going to do. clearly, you know, the cardinals want him to reform the vatican curia, and i think he is going to start doing it symbolically. >> reporter: bishops are told they'll keep their roles. at the end, the pope said go and have lunch. what a great way to win fans to tell them to get something to
7:06am
eat. >> thank you. >> and i head to the vatican later today to bring live coverage of the installation tomorrow on "today," and coverage begins bright and early. check your local listings. meantime, natalie has the other top stories. good morning. >> good morning, everyone. despite a guilty verdict this weekend, the rape case in steubenville, ohio will press on. a grand jury will investigate whether or not anyone else broke the law by not reporting the rape of a 16-year-old girl at a party last summer. on sunday, two high school football players were convicted of rape, will serve at least a year in juvenile prison. more on this coming up in a live report. republican in fighting broke out at the annual conservative political action conference. nbc's political director chuck todd has the latest. good morning, chuck. >> good morning, natalie. this morning, the republican party is releasing to the public a brutal internal autopsy of what went wrong in the 2012 election. it is a long list of mistakes,
7:07am
and includes potential ideas for reform. but as you just brought up, the party is trying to rehabilitate its image, solve an identity crisis, and it means feuds are breaking out all over, including one between karl rove and sarah palin. sarah palin stole the show at this weekend's cpac convention, playing more the role of entertainer and standup comedian than a serious politician. >> bloomberg is not around. >> her remarks included a direct shot at karl rove. >> the last thing we need is washington, d.c. vetting our candidates. it is these experts that keep losing elections, you keep getting rehired, raking in millions. architects can head on back -- they can head back to the lone star state and put their name on some ballots.
7:08am
>> he fired back reminding palin of her political primary. >> if she can plan primaries, other people can. >> if i did, i would serve my term, i wouldn't leave office mid term. >> jeb bush offered tough love to his party. >> all too often we are associated with being anti-everything. >> neither bush nor palin scored with conservatives for the 2006 race. it was rand paul and marco rubio that took top spots in the cpac straw poll. >> that republican party autopsy one of the things they're putting forward for 2006, limiting primary debates to less than a dozen, moving the convention to late june, mid july. a costly six minutes for defensive end dumervil. he lost his spot on the broncos roster after the contract was faxed six minutes after the 4:00
7:09am
p.m. deadline. the tardy fax made him a free agent and axed an $8 million contract. as you might expect, he then fired his agent as well. this video is a hit online. officials are investigating this incident caught on camera in surfer's paradise, australia. check out what happens when drunken heck letter pushes the street performer too far. human statue david molder apologized for losing his cool but received support from around the world for letting that guy have it. >> all right. >> thanks, natalie. spring starts on wednesday, but it is not going to feel like it. we have snow, ice, heavy rain moving through almost most of the country.
7:10am
we are seeing the snow from minnesota right over into d.c., it will move into the northeast as we head through the day today. most of that snow in boston. we will check the local forecast after this message. forecast after this message. your local forecast right after this message. ♪ our house is a very, very, very fine house. ♪ ♪ with two cats in the yard, ♪ life used to be so hard. ♪ now everything is easy 'cause of you, ♪ ♪ and our la, la, ♪ la, la, la, la, ♪ la, la, la, la, ♪ la, la, la, la. . . . mostly sunny conditions to start. very little to report at all.
7:11am
maybe some ragged patches at the coast. overall, visibility readings are looking good, 5-10 miles. 70 in livermore. 68 in santa teresa. 70 in gilroy. last dry day before the rain moves in as we head through tomorrow. in particular, wednesday will be a washout. hope you have a great day. latest forecast forecast, matt. we have more on the guilty ron, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. trent mays and ma'lik richmond spend their days as registered sex offenders behind bars in juvenile detention. the fallout far from over. a grand jury will begin investigating whether anyone else should be held responsible for the sexual attack of a 16-year-old girl who finally got some measure of justice here in court. the verdict was guilty, and it hit trent mays, 17, and ma'lik richmond, 16, very hard. >> would truly like to
7:12am
apologize. sorry to put you guys through this. >> reporter: but it was too late for the ones promising student athletes with dreams of college glory. the judge found them guilty based on eyewitness testimony and hundreds of text messages, many quite graphic, about the attack of the young girl. the victim's mother recorded this message to the boys on audio tape. >> i have pity for you both. i hope you fear the lord, repent for your actions, and pray hard for forgiveness. >> reporter: the family attorney said despite the apology, the young victim has yet to forgive her attackers. >> sure, she's working on trying to do that, and knowing the family, they will work towards accepting that apology and giving forgiveness at some time. >> reporter: prosecutors revealed at least 16 people have refused to cooperate with their investigation, of the alcohol fueled night of party hopping by dozens of teenagers when the victim was raped. possible charges they say include tampering with evidence or failure to report witnessing
7:13am
a felony. >> we need to say enough is enough. among some people, there seems to be an unbelievable casualness about rape. >> reporter: despite pleas for leniency, the judge said he imposed a tough sentence on richmond and mays to make it clear to them and everyone else that they committed a very serious crime. the two boys could be held in detention for several years until they're 21 years old. meanwhile, the attorney for the victim says while she has some difficult times, she has been able to resume most of her normal life. >> ron, thanks very much. lisa bloom, today's legal analyst. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> the victim does not remember really anything that happened the night of the attack. she learned a lot of the details based on photos and information posted online and in social media. the prosecutors used that same information to kind of create a time line. how does this change the dynamic from here forward?
7:14am
>> well, what's remarkable about this case and so many cases involving teens today is that this, one of the two boys here was texting as the rape was going on exactly what he was doing, referring to the young girl as dead. when he tried to assert a defense at trial she was cious and aware what was happening, it was undercut by his own words. >> this was not an easy case to prosecute, consent was a huge issue here, and the victim was in eastbound reated, so unable to give consent. >> didn't remember anything. >> what did the prosecution do right? >> they went through all the cell phones of the kids, confiscated them, they looked at photos and videos of what happened. one photo, the girl was strung by her arms and legs by the two boys, being carried off. she looked unconscious in the photo. that was critical in the case. >> the defense would like to bring up some information about the victim's past, but laws in ohio and many other states prevent that. was there more the defense could have done in your opinion? >> i don't think so.
7:15am
i think this was a tough case for the defense because of all of the admissions by the two defendants. >> now the attorney general in ohio, mike dewine says we're going to convene a grand jury, might bring other people in front of it. there are reports up to 16 people knew about it, texted about it, witnessed it, or did not cooperate. do you expect more charges to be filed? >> i think it is very possible. that's what ignited this case online. it is social media that lit a fire under prosecutors when some said they were covering up, local law enforcement was covering up for the football players. how could so many people have known what happened and failed to help this girl, failed to report. was there a coverup? that's the next stage. >> the question will be asked, is it your moral responsibility or legal responsibility? >> for adults that supervise children, if they knew, they had a legal responsibility to report. >> lisa bloom, as always, thank you very much. here is savannah. >> a 42-year-old mom from california just completed an amazing fete.
7:16am
52 marathons in 52 weeks. natalie is back with her story. >> good morning. she's such an inspiration. pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the united states. when it claimed the life of julie weiss' father, she wanted to honor him and prevent others suffering the same fate. julie weiss is the rocky of marathon runners. wherever she goes, people flock to her. for julie, the start of the los angeles marathon is actually the beginning of the end of a quest to run 52 marathons in 52 weeks. it all started after julie's father, maurice, died in 2010, only a month after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. >> people don't know what we're dealing with here. this is almost like a death sentence. >> her first marathon a year ago in rome.
7:17am
from there, she spent 51 weeks with a spring in her step and smile on her face. >> psychologically it was taxing, tiring. >> every friday, she leaves her two kids and 9 to 5 job to hop on a plane, run a marathon and make it back to work monday. along the way, raising $200,000 for pancreatic research. >> we had never had anybody do what julie weiss has done. >> one year, 1300 miles later, her journey is complete. >> pancreatic cancer is my only competitor out there, i intend to beat it. >> julie is not done yet. she's going to keep raising money, wants to run another 52 by 2020. >> natalie, thank you. still ahead, maria shriver at the vatican with the story

7:29am
good to see you again. >> reporter: nice to see you too, savannah. it's a bit of a blustery morning here. the name choice of francis is historic groundbreaking and hopeful. he chose the name after st. francis assisi, a man known for his humility and awe authenticity and love of the poor. it has many hoping that this pope might take the catholic church back to simpler times. assisi is called the city of peace. pilgrims come from around the world to pray to the saint. for the beloved and poor. his name sends a signal. this will not be business as usual. >> spiritual reclamation that will lead to changes. >> reporter: this is a francescan friar. much came when the pope came out to the public he began by asking
7:30am
the public to bless him as to other popes that blessed the people first. what has struck you in these first few days that makes you think we're in a new era? >> he appeared in a simple white cossack. riding the bus with the other cardinals and paying his own bill and picking up his own luggage. i think it's that humility and sense of service. that struck me the most. >> here is a 9:00 a.m. in assisi. this is the inspiration behind this pope's choice. the snirs inspiration behind this pope's choice. francis wasn't always saintly. he grew up wealthy and threw the best parties in town, earning the nickname the king of feast. but he gave it all up. sister, here in the basilica, all of these murals really depict francis' life. where does it begin for you?
7:31am
>> the second one. it is depicting francis giving his cloak to a poor man, a leper. >> he reached out to the leper. this fresco depicts francis praying. this is where he heard jesus give him the guidance to go out and rebuild the church. >> he said go rebuild my church. you see it is fallen to ruin. he rebuilt it literally. >> reporter: when we hear the pope talk about rebuilding the church in the name of st. francis it's about rebuilding the church from inside out. >> exactly. addressing the problem in new ways. calling for renewal, rebirth. >> reporter: people from around the world hope this saint's legacy will be brought to life by this new pope, already known as the people's pope. do you feel that we're at a new
7:32am
time? >> i think the church is ready for turning a page on many issues and opening the books to other discussions. >> reporter: well, the people of assisi hope this pope will come to their town on the feast day of st. francis which is october 1st, further making his connection between the pope and and the people of this remarkable saint. >> you were there there on saturday. give me your quick impressions on that. >> reporter: the lines were around the block. this is a man who is very comfortable when he came in. he stuck to the script originally and then put it down. he started talking ad-lib. he was funny. and i think the thing that was most moving to me is when he started to talk about why he chose the name when it became clear they had chosen a pope. his friend leaned over to him and said, "don't forget about the poor." he thought about the wars that were going on.
7:33am
and the concept of peace and that brought him to st. francis and those two things together made him choose that name. a jesuit choosing this name but jesuits are free thinkers and challenge dogma and do a lot of things. by choosing this name a saint who is familiar to a lot of people and bring tissues of simplicity, authenticity and poverty to the forefront, people are really excited about it. >> maria shriver at the vatican this morning. again i'll be there tomorrow morning to bring you complete coverage of the pope's installation live morrow morning right here on "today." >> we want to get a check of the weather from dylan dreyer who is in for al. >> good morning. i don't believe it but this young man is 70 years old. >> 70 years old. >> his first time in new york city. was it worth the wait? >> yes, ma'am, it was you got snowed on a couple of times. but you can handle it because you're from colorado. >> from colorado. we're talking about snow all over the place.
7:34am
the next storm system is already producing blizzard warnings, started last night but what blizzard warnings not so much because of the ton of snow more the wind gust, up to 50 miles per hour. reducing visibility and making a mess for the morning commute right through minneapolis. snow and ice back into chicago and southern wisconsin too. we're not looking at a whole lot of additional snow except for northeastern minnesota. we could see another 6 to 9 inches. most areas will see another 3 inches or so. then on the east coast again it's the rain and ice and snow that will move into new england, especially a little bit later on this morning into this afternoon where a foot of snow is possible in some of the highest elevations out that way. of the 7:36. now, good morning. i'm meteorologist, christina loren. san francisco, a beautiful day shaping up. our last dry before the rain moves in. mostly tomorrow afternoon into the evening. 68 in santa teresa. 68 degrees comfort right here in san jose. a little bit cooler at the coast, not by much. about 65 degrees in ocean beach. getting into the next couple

we're back now 8:09 with today's professionals. here to weigh in on stories that have a lot of people talking. let's start by talk about pope francis. a lot of people are falling in love with this guy in part because of humility and authenticity. he said i won't stand and greet the opener cardinals on an elevated platform. he rode a minivan. he went to the hotel, checked himself out paid his own bill. so a lot of people like this move to simplicity, a move to the poor. is it possible to take it too far? >> in a way. as pope he has certain security issues that has to be put in place. there are certain things he can't do. he should not be in the public transportation. he can afford to be a man of the people but he really can't be with the people all the time.
8:09am
>> this morning when he went out of the vatican and greeted some of the faithful at the side there you don't think we'll see this for long? >> to me it's interesting. it's great to do all of this style stuff man of the people. but until the catholic church starts to address what we all know are the real issues that the church has, this stuff doesn't matter. >> it's interesting sitting here today because we have a charismatic christian a jew and a episcopalian. if this man has adopted the name of francis of francis of assisi and deals with the poor, poverty
8:10am
without birth control begets more poverty. so this is a chance to take the humility and the poverty and say now we're really going to talk about this in a civilized way and move it forward. >> the pope is not going to make those changes like that. it's not happening. >> you have a deeper direction than i intended. i meant on a more superficial level. does this behavior take away from the mystique. >> let's move on. this next story got a lot of attention. senator rob portman, a prominent republican senator who was considered as a running mate for mitt romney has decided he has changed his stance on the issue of same sex marriage. he now supports it after years after being oppose toitd.
8:11am
the reason is very personal. he says he has a gay son and he wants that son to have all the same rights as anyone else when it comes to marriage. what strikes you about this story? >> barry goldwater. it really takes me back. barry goldwater was frankly became sort of a centrist republican and when his nephew came out of the closet and said he was gay, barry goldwater thought the republican party should be inclusive. what happens to these men once it's in my family tolerance starts to look a lot different and when his son will came out that changed things. >> i always like to give the analogy are you for torture or water boarding. no. how about if torture and water boarding would stop your child from dying the next day. of course. we're all ideologues.
8:12am
>> as a lawmaker your actions should be grountded in the constitution of the united states. he should be making decisions as a lawmaker and not be making decisions based on -- >> the timing of had strike anyone? he's known his son is gay for the last two years and yet when he was there on the campaign trail supporting the republican nominee he never mentioned anything about this evolving stance on same sex marriage. now the election is over and he does. >> he would still be considered as a vice presidential candidate. >> if the republicans would smart they would funds they move on some of these social issues it would help the party. >> here's one that caught my attention. a player has been banned from soccer team for life. he gave this salute after scoring a goal that federation has said you'll no longer play soccer for life.
8:13am
does the punishment fit crime? >> as a charismatic jew absolutely. i'm sorry. he's pleading ignorance at this point. >> he's 0 years old. >> he was only pointing to a friend in the stand and didn't know what the salute meant. >> that was a little bit of a lie right from the beginning. he admitted that part that he didn't know that this was supposed to be something negative. you know, i was thinking about this. i place a lot of burdens on young people for use of the n-word for knowledge about what symbols mean. when you're 20 years old and this has not been your experience, can you give him a little bit of room? >> the problem is what he did was awful. >> yes. >> however, he's 20. and a life ban at 20 is unbelievable. prince harry dressed up as a nazi for a halloween party. >> i don't believe, once again i'm speaking as a jewish guy but i don't believe 20-year-olds
8:14am
don't understand what that means. >> from this player. i'm not a fascist and would not have done it if i knew what it meant. his german coach supported him saying he most likely saw such a salute on the internet or somewhere else dean it without knowing what it means. >> you know what the moral of the story is? we need to educate our youth. when 6 million people die and 20-year-olds don't understand that's a symbol of the atrocity. >> i'm not sure what the punishment should be but a lifetime ban when you're 20 -- >> if he traveled somewhere else do you think they will welcome him? >> he might be in danger. i don't know. >> that was the anniversary of some of the atrocities as it relays. last minute i have. kate middleton is pregnant. have you heard that >> no. >> she was speaking to a soldier at an event over the weekend, the duchess of cambridge and
8:15am
said she does not know what sex baby she's having but that she's hoping for a boy. all right. should she have said that? >> don't know i believe she said that. >> because of the last videotape? should a mother ever say that? >> why not? >> you do wish much >> i was sitting here think field goal i could adopt a child i would adopt a girl. i want a little girl. >> when you hear people say that and the other sex comes out they go i'm so thrilled. i don't think it should be headlines. if she has a girl the child kate did not want. >> a little girl comes out queen of england. women unite. i'll be thrilled. >> i would love it if she was a tom boy. >> be careful. if somebody says you're a god you say no. nice to have you all back together.

8:17am
person. i'm gas to be back, actually. it feels good to be here. but, yeah, "the croods" is a whole other kind of movie. it's a family movie. >> what did you like about the part in your character? >> i really care about grug. he's an overprotective father which is where a lot of comedy comes from. but at the end he learns to let go and because of that he has a much stronger relationship with his daughter. >> i love his motto, fear is good, change is bad, anything is fun is bad and never not be afraid. >> that's entirely antithetical to what i believe. it's no secret i've tried to take chances in my career and also in my life and i believe, you know, to not live in fear and i would cringe when i would have to say those lines but that's the character. >> grug is not evolved bullpen as a cave man he evolves through

>> for me. i have a simpler life much i get up in the morning. i drive my kid to school. i take my wife to lunch. >> sounds idyllic. >> is it true you turned down "shrek"? >> yes. >> you thought the character was ugly. >> the news said it was because of vanity. that's a bit strong. but, no, the truth is i'm not afraid to be ugly in a movie. but i must say that when you're drawn -- in a way it says more about how children are going to see you than anything else so i care about that. i want kids to look at grug knowing he's a bit scary but he's a big teddy bear. >> nicholas cage, great to see you. don't wait another seven years. come on back. >> thanks so much. >> "the croods" open on friday. >> from one nick to another

9:00am
athletes to end alzheimer's. thanks to them for allowing me to run with them. we had a great time. >> did you finish? >> of course. >> i thought you retired from marathoning? >> it was a half marathon. i may do a marathon again some day. somebody may twist my arm hard enough. >> give me your arm. >> that's impressive. >> i love doing that. let's get to our takes, okay? moving on. first up, the topic we saw earlier. duchess of cambridge was asked while she was out doing the st. patrick's day ceremonies, she was honoring the irish guards there. apparently one of the guards asked her, so, what would you like to have a boy or a girl? >> i'm surprised that woe have the guts to ask her that question. >> he should be a reporter. >> apparently, according to the officer he said that she said she would like to have a boy. prince william would like a
9:01am
girl. i guess the question is, how much do we really expect her to reveal? she is not going to reveal anything, if at all. that was surprising. >> she really is a public person. she knows that's her life now. >> she is hedging her bets saying one of each. >> of course. obviously, this is their first. they probably don't know what to expect. when i had my daughter, i was hoping for a boy because as a guy i wanted a boy. guys want to have boys, right? i never really said it. but when i had a daughter, i couldn't imagine having anything else. no one can get you ready for that day. >> it's so true. >> was this caught on camera? no. did this really happen? a couple of weeks someone handed her a teddy bear and said, take this. she almost let it slip this would be perfect for my da --. >> dog, maybe? >> she is being very candid when she makes these public appearances. >> i don't think she is giving
9:02am
away all that much information. one thing that did give away apparently was her heel. her heel got stuck from a grate. a drainage issue. that happens quite often. when you're five months pregnant, everybody takes a deep breath and says, don't stumble. it's nice when you have her prince nearby to hold on to him. >> everybody needs a prince if your heels go down. >> if only that could happen to all of us, right? that would be our lucky day. i think we are all still reliving justin timberlake's week last week. he was all over fallon and "saturday night live," as well. a lot of us last week were waiting for the "history of rap." >> i want to be this guy. the talent level is through the roof. anything that he does, he does it -- exceeds your expectations. it's amazing. jimmy fallon sings right with him. jimmy fallon wants to be a musician.
9:03am
deep down. >> it comes out whenever j.t. is around. >> absolutely. when those guys get together, the magic happens. >> let's show the installment of the history of rap number four. take a look. ♪ ♪ your pony ♪ you want to take a ride with me ♪ ♪ rap that i live this way ♪ got $20 in my pocket ♪ this is freaking awesome >> and they know they're awesome. they know that, too. they can pull that off. honestly the "snl" ratings. fallon, an amazing job. he is doing a line album release party for target. he'll talk about how the album came about. he's going to drop a new music video. >> it's been years.
9:04am
>> exactly. he's gearing up for the jay-z tour for the summer. >> do you worry about overexposure at that level? >> he took seven years off. >> with the music. >> that helped him out. now he is rebranded completely. who has a cooler life than him? he's hosting "snl," then musical guest, then jay-z joins him the last third of the song. >> and married to jessica biel. >> that's why i want to be him. >> take three. the sitcom smackdown. we have a winner apparently. you guys talked about this last week. the greatest tv comedy for the past 30 years. if you could rate them what were they? to answer that question, "new york" magazine held the ultimate sitcom smackdown. criterias were the show had to be made from 1982 onward. also had to run nothing less than three seasons was eligible.
9:05am
had to be full-on sitcoms, not just sketch shows like "saturday night live" or anything. >> there is the breakdown. i had problems with this thing. i said it on thursday. there was no "full house." there was no "curb your enthusiasm." no "frasier", no "everybody loves raymond." sex in the city knocked out somebody. >> i don't even consider that a sitcom. "cheers" was my all-time favorite. >> it took place in a restaurant that. was an easy one. >> the winner is? >> i'm going to say "the simpsons." >> you're right. >> really? >> congratulations. >> i think it's great. it's great for "the simpsons." >> i feel like you're surprised by that. >> i am surprised by that. i have a whole other bar where i put the simpsons compared to the others. >> i wasn't allowed to watch "the simpsons."
9:06am
>> that's my wife's favorite show. >> last time i watched it was in college. we do have a bonus take. you'll be taste testing this for us. >> we're the guys doing this. >> yeah. i have to do the news. i can't be smacking gum. wrigley's has a new kind of gum called alert. apparently, it has about half the amount of caffeine. you're wired. you're alert. half a cup of coffee worth of caffeine. it will give you a little bit of jolt. >> doing something for the first time on tv is a great idea. >> especially when you have to talk. >> takes a while to get the gum going. >> how you feeling? >> i feel like i want a cup of coffee with half and half in it. of course we need the caffeine to get going in the morning, but there is something about the ritual of a cup of coffee that sets my day. i don't know how you feel about it. >> this would be good if you want to cleanse the palate after a cup of coffee perhaps.
9:07am
>> i don't like coffee this. could give me an adult. kids are going to try this. it may be controversial. >> i guess some people will wonder who they are going to market this to. definitely the adult audience. i'm sure kids will try it as they try all things with caffeine. all right. >> thank you, bobby. >> you've got to check on the news. >> i do. >> officials say the pilot of a private jet that crashed into several homes sunday in south bend, indiana, had radioed for help after having equipment problems. the plane traveling out of tulsa, oklahoma, was trying to land at south bend regional airport when it went down. at least two people aboard the plane were killed. two others in the aircraft were injured along with one person on the ground. nearby homes were evacuated because of the fear of a fire or explosion. vice president joe biden is in rome to head the u.s. delegation at tomorrow's official installation of pope francis. meantime, an overflow crowd gathered in st. peter's square

this is bob, nounce] a regular guy with an irregular heartbeat. the usual, bob? not today. [ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes.
9:12am
do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com.

9:16am
the etchinges can't come off. that will hurt the value. >> no famous names >> not that we noticed. it's signed by the great sterling maker. a lot of the value $1,000 $1500. >> that's awesome. liberace pin. >> liberace gave it to the owner of the fountainbleu hotel. >> in this instance about $400 to $600. if we had a note from liberace and there's a movie coming out, if we had a note to go with to it tie to it the piece, maybe could be more. >> so it's the proof of ownership. >> previous ownership. exactly. >> liberace gave out a lot of
9:17am
jewelry. >> this is close to your heart? >> my husband said he was getting in on the action. he has thousand comic books setting there. >> your going to part with these? >> not yet. >> find out how much are they worth? >> about $950. there's more in a group which is even more exciting for us. we would like to see what you have. this is interesting, you kept them in good condition. keeping them in the packaging will help the value. >> huge indication of where the value will be. more tearing and yell jog you have on the pages the majority will affect negatively. you're looking for mint condition the better the condition is the more money they will bring. >> $900. will you do it elliot? >> dinner is on me tonight. >> what are mistakes people make when it realize coming to selling something is expensive.

9:19am
>> egg warmer at the end? >> yes. >> never seen one like that. >> how much do you think something like that would go for? >> in this instance under $150 in value because it has no sterling silver marks and standard marks were on everything. so i would love to have that tested. >> guitar was worth? >> it could be less than $300. could it be worth a lot more if we had authentication. >> thank you guys very much. >> i love it. >> i'm not going to steal this or anything. >> coming up, vera will be joining us but first these messages. hey, it's sara. i'm going pro. i've been using crest pro-health for a week. my dentist said it was gonna help transform my mouth.

9:47am
>> i'll go for 50%, b. >> 25%. >> you are correct. told you you would do good. next one. true false. calorie free means no calories? >> calorie free? >> false. >> it's five calories or less. that's not a big deal but it threads the point it's confusing to read these labels. >> let's get one label here we'll show you our nutrition label. this comes from macaroni and cheese and what we're looking for is the serving size which a lot of people can be deceived by that. >> first thing you need to look at is the serving size because the rest of the information on the label will lead back to the serving size. for example we see serving size one cup but serving per container is two. we're in that situation where we picked up a bag of chips or individually packaged muffin and this looks like a serving for me. in the meantime you've eaten
9:48am
three servings. >> calories per serving and calories from fat. >> here's where the math comes in. i didn't like math. there's 250 per serving. so, for example, in this package it would 250 times two, because there's two servings in the package. so we got 500 calories. calories from fat is left over when people are concerned about fat. fat has a role in our diets but we need to look where the fat is coming from. >> transfat. >> and saturated fat. saturated fat comes from animal products can lead to increased risk for cardiovascular disease. research will show or has started to show there's actually even a little bit of a role for saturated fat in our diet. transfats we know we need none of. here we see three but even if
9:49am
you see zero grams on the level you must read the ingredient list. if it says partially hyd hydrogenated there's still transfat in there. >> cholesterol and sodium take note of that. >> let's go to total carbohydrates. 31 grams for the one serving. dietary fibers and sugar also listed here and the protein as well. >> five sugars listed here because they are carbohydrates. fiber we want more of. sugar we want to look to avoid. again you have to go and read that ingredient list. looking at the nutrition facts panel is like buying a house without going inside. you need to see where those sugars come from. if you see anything with oats
9:50am
it's natural sugar. >> in here will be listed vitamin a, b, c, calcium. many people don't get enough of. >> let's see now finally to the last label when you put it all together we're talking about the percent daily value. why is this important right here? >> the percent daily value will tell you the amount of each of these nutrients that you're getting for one serving towards your daily allotment. so below five is low and above 20 is going to be high. so you really need to put this all together. don't forget to read the ingredient list. you need marry the nutrition facts label and the ingredient list to get the full picture of that product. >> don't forget the serving size. thanks so much. coming up -- first "today" on nbc.
